Caption: Counterfeit passport number. Image 2 of 2. Output from a scan by a video spectral comparator. The letter 'E' has been revealed as the genuine letter in the passport number. This was revealed by use of the video spectral comparator to view this document under light of a different wavelength. This change in wavelength made the fake ink less visible, though it is still faintly seen forming the fake letter 'B'. The fake passport letter is seen in visible light in image T980/213.
